Dear Ministry Partners,
Yet another month has flown by, so it’s time for another short update.
The highlight of this month had nothing to do with my classes or my students. This past Wednesday, Schools of Hope and The Honduran Fellowship of Missionaries and Ministries co-sponsored the second annual “Missionary Day Apart” here in Tegucigalpa. It was a day of fun, teaching, encouragement, fellowship, and prayer. Several missionaries said they felt as if one or more of the messages were specifically for them.
I took pictures throughout the day, but I was still able to enjoy myself, get encouraged, meet some new people, and get some food for thought. The day ended with a powerful time of prayer for each missionary individually.
As I look forward to the International Conference on Missions in November, I anticipate a lot more encouragement, new friends, food for thought, and powerful prayer times. I also expect to be challenged.
One other high point in October occurred as I was waiting at the church gate for my taxi one afternoon. A young Honduran man was walking by and stopped to talk to me. He spoke fairly good English. In our three or four minute conversation, he thanked me three times for being here. It was a nice end to the day!
English classes continued this month as scheduled, with the exception of a few days when my teen students couldn’t come because of school activities. I used that time to work on a presention I will be doing in November. We didn’t have any exams this month, but I know the students are making progress. Next month, we will have exams and again in December.
As this year quickly approaches it’s close, please pray for my students and me to finish strong!
Thank you all for praying for rain. One of the two main reservoirs for the city was full last week and the second was almost full. We’ve had more rain since then, so I would guess that both are now full. This is wonderful, since we will be transitioning into the dry season during the month of November. Hopefully, the water we have now will be enough to make additional water rationing unnecessary.
- That God will bring me the right students for new classes in January.
- That God will continue to guide me as I prepare new English lessons and my mission presentation for November.
- That He will help my students to finish this school year strong.
- That God will continue to provide for my financial needs.
- That I will hear whatever God wants me to hear during my time at the International Conference on Missions and will respond accordingly.
